Pakistan announces squad for first Test against Bangladesh

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday announced its 12-man squad for the first Test against Bangladesh.

Pakistan’s clash with Bangladesh will start in Chittagong’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium from Friday.

The second Test will be played at Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium, Dhaka from December 4.

Meanwhile, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam, in a virtual presser from Chittagong, said that the pitches in Bangladesh are slow.

He spoke about his side’s performance and said that he expects his team will perform well in the series. “The batting line-up includes senior players, who play spinners well. The players joining the Test squad were playing domestic cricket and we will benefit from this,” he stated.

“We have been playing white-ball cricket for many months now we have to adapt to red-ball cricket as soon as possible, we have top spinners in the team,” he said.

Squad: Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan, Abdullah Shafique, Abid Ali, Azhar Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Fawad Alam, Hasan Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Nauman Ali, Sajid Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi.
